An eyebrow transplant is an ideal cosmetic hair restoration surgery for restoring hair growth or redefining thin or sparse eyebrows. Fuller, natural-appearing eyebrows are becoming the most attractive and sought-after look, and Dr. Natalie Attenello approaches this cosmetic hair surgery with a unique and professional perspective. Dr. Attenello is a double-board-certified, fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon and one of a few female hair surgeons in the country who specializes in hair restoration and transplants for men and women. She’ll help you achieve exceptional results and a balanced aesthetic appeal for this integral facial feature.
Eyebrow hair transplants are an excellent option for men and women who wish to restore their eyebrows permanently using their own natural hair. Depending on the severity of hair loss and your aesthetic goals, you can choose either a full or partial eyebrow transplant to restore thin spots.
Qualifying Reasons for Eyebrow Transplant?
Adverse consequences from persistent over-plucked or over-tweezed eyebrows
Naturally thin eyebrows (genetics)

What to Expect from Eyebrow Transplant Surgery?
An eyebrow hair transplant procedure usually takes 3-5 hours. Eyebrow transplantation is an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia. You will not require general anesthesia. Pain and discomfort will be managed with medication so you can relax. Discomfort is usually minimal, and many patients will sleep, listen to music, or watch television during the procedure. Dr. Attenello is skilled in all facets of hair restoration and transplantation and will deliver satisfying natural-looking cosmetic results.
Will a Hair Transplant Give My Eyebrows More Shape?
Definitely! The most important part of the eyebrow transplant procedure is the design of the eyebrows. During your hair transplant consultation, Dr. Attenello will examine your current anatomy and together you will discuss an eyebrow design, including shape and size, that will balance your facial features and match your ideal aesthetic goals. Each eyebrow procedure is customized to fit every patient’s unique differences.
How Are the Hairs for an Eyebrow Transplant Obtained?
Your natural hair is removed from the back of your scalp using either the Follicular Unit Transfer (F.U.T) or the Follicular Unit Extraction (F.U.E) methods. You will not experience gaps or bald areas, and there will not be any noticeable difference after the hairs are taken. The removed hairs are then carefully trimmed and delicately placed in the eyebrow region.
What Can I Expect After the Eyebrow Transplant Procedure?
Similar to hair transplantation to the scalp, the natural hair cycle continues and these hairs may shed and start the regrowth cycle after 10-12 weeks. Newly grafted hair applied to your new eyebrows is expected to continue growing once transplanted, as such they will need to be trimmed regularly.
How Long is Recovery After an Eyebrow Transplant?
You will see the results immediately after an eyebrow transplant procedure. Mild redness, swelling, crusting, or tiny scabs around each follicle can be expected where the hair grafts were placed, and this usually resolves after a few days to a week. Depending on your comfort level, many patients can return to work and social activity after one to two days. Though we advise against certain activities such as heavy lifting and smoking.
Why Is It Important to Choose a Hair Transplant Specialist for Eyebrow Surgery?
Although some people try hair transplant alternatives like tattooing or micro blading, these hair restoration methods are often temporary and deliver unnatural results. Eyebrow transplantation is a specialized procedure designed to deliver superior results. Attention to detail is crucial. The angle and density of the hair transplant is a critical parameter that requires extensive knowledge. Lack of attention or expertise can result in sparse eyebrows with hair growing in erratic patterns. Dr. Attenello understands the anatomy of the hair follicle and uses state-of-the-art magnified lenses to recreate a natural, fuller eyebrow.
